Love Your Block

Neighborhood Trees

All of the Love Your Block trees have found homes in Duluth, MN and are no longer available for planting.

Thank you to everyone who applied, planted, or expressed interest in a tree.

Trees provide benefits to our neighborhoods by improving air quality, keeping spaces cool and shaded, improving mental health, attracting birds that control pests, and absorbing excess water to reduce flooding.

Love Your Block is thrilled to provide trees to property owners in Duluth city limits. This effort is made possible with support from the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation, Great Lakes One Watershed (GLOW), Ready North, and the City of Duluth.
